The Functional School
Taylor, as noted above, centered his attention upon manager-
ial problems at the lower echelons of supervisory management.
However, on the European front, Henri Fayol was busy developing
management thought by concentrating on the upper-management
levels. Fayol visualized the task of management as consisting of
several distinct functions: planning, organizing, commanding, coor-
dinating, and controlling. Richards and Greenlaw note that Fayol's
work was based more upon generalizing from his experience as an
industrial manager rather than upon the detailed research that char-
acterized Taylor's work. ^ Fayol's work gave rise to the functional
or classical approach to management thought. Many contemporary
management theorists have contributed and expanded on Fayol's
functional approach. Some of the leading authors of management texts
using this approach are Terry, Koontz and O'Donnell, and
Henri Fayol, Administration Industrielle et Generate, 1916.
